It is doable, but you need to use FC4 dynamic linker as well, so run it as
/whatever/dir/ld-2.3.*.so --library-path /whatever/dir/ \
/whatever/dir/the_program arguments
and grab all the libraries the program is using into /whatever/dir/ from
FC4, not just glibc.  If it say uses X libs, then you need to unpack X
shared libraries there etc.
The reason is that (almost) all shared libraries in FC5 require things that
LinuxThreads does not provide (mainly -fstack-protector support).
